Holistic manufacturing – the power of a 3D printing partner

Our panel of experts discussed:

  • How to take full advantage of the benefits of 3D printing – whether it’s reducing your time to market, costs or part weight
  • Unlocking the potential of 3D printing through design
  • Guidance for your material and process selection
  • Use case applications and practical advice for integrating 3D printing into your manufacturing mix

3D printing continues to play a vital role in the COVID-19 crisis, with the ability to switch production focus instantly to cover supply chain challenges and meet demand for protective medical equipment. OEMs now cannot ignore its advantages in keeping their business sustainable and resilient in the new reality.

Head of Additive Manufacturing at Deutsche Bahn, Stefanie Brickwede, spoke this year of “another stage of breakthrough” at board level concerning engagement with additive manufacturing.

The business case for 3D printing doesn’t start and stop at reduced product development time. Production tooling and jigs and fixtures are a crucial part of the shop floor – now ready in hours, not weeks, with 3D printing. Don’t know where to start with integrating 3D printing into your production process? Confused by the jargon? Sceptical about the performance and range of 3D materials? Unsure whether to invest in expensive hardware?

This webinar helps shine a light on de-risking 3D printing and where this powerful technology sits as part of your manufacturing mix, as the Ricoh 3D team shares a range of applications and the unique insight of an end-to end manufacturer with over 80 years’ expertise.

Our panel of experts discussed:

  • How to take full advantage of the benefits of 3D printing – whether it’s reducing your time to market, costs or part weight
  • Unlocking the potential of 3D printing through design
  • Guidance for your material and process selection
  • Use case applications and practical advice for integrating 3D printing into your manufacturing mix

How to take your communications and print room to the next level - delivering enhanced services and innovation

Our panel of experts discussed:

  • How print rooms can be a focal point for organisations and provide services that go beyond print as a ‘critical communications hub’
  • Why it’s important to make it simple and access print jobs from multiple locations
  • How the right tools ensure communications are on brand and consistent
  • How you can reduce the risk of a breach or GDPR problems

Centralisation has always been key for Central Reprographic Departments (CRDs), however, pre March 2020, approximately 30% of print jobs were typically sent outside the organisation and this looks set to increase as many employees and customers continue to work remotely.

Now is the time to assess the approach and services offered, to ensure the CRD becomes flexible, able to maintain business continuity and also innovate, whilst maintaining centralisation through workflow technology. As CRDs begin to navigate their re-opening to offer services beyond critical support, it’s important to move from a focus on printed collateral towards personalised content across a variety of digital channels.

In this webinar you’ll hear from experts as they discuss the speed of the recent transformation we have all experienced and the opportunities this has given. From fully understanding the need for user friendly interfaces and data security, to the benefits of introducing simplified processes to enable a diverse range of service offerings.

Our panel of experts discussed:

  • How print rooms can be a focal point for organisations and provide services that go beyond print as a ‘critical communications hub’
  • Why it’s important to make it simple and access print jobs from multiple locations
  • How the right tools ensure communications are on brand and consistent
  • How you can reduce the risk of a breach or GDPR problems
  • Why ‘workflow is configuration not installation’ and how to remove complex IT barriers
